60 + Halloween Recipes

It is #Tuesdaytips and we are bringing you Halloween early. Matthew and I have a special love for the spooky season (well from October to January for all the holidays). What we love about celebrating holidays is that we create memories, new traditions and try new things. That includes new foods. It is not only fun but creates a bond for us. It is also educational. I know you are all thinking but its mostly candy right? Some yes. The candy process is all about chemistry, but there is a lot of creativeness and you can work on new ways of creating fun halloween dishes with a healthy dose.

It is also a great time to talk about nutrition. How to balance the snack and desserts with eating balanced meals is so important so we provided a huge list of fun recipes that are a mix of healthy and not. We hope you enjoy them.
